The Unstable Mind of a Writer

How do I write,

When my head is so tight?

Try as I might,

The words are quite right.

Poetry is hard,

When my thoughts are scarred.

I’m in a literacy junkyard,

In need of a wordsmith lifeguard.

So I go with the flow,

Write what I know.

Where will my words go?

I dunno.

Maybe over rainbow,

Or to a whole new place,

Where words I’ll embrace.

Il discover my inner space,

And with poetry I’ll interface.
